Cancer World Newsletter: Imaging in oncology - over a century of advances PDF Print E-mail
Imaging techniques that tell us as much as possible about a cancer are becoming an essential part of the development of precision medicine. This e-grandround presents a unique overview that brings together all the developments in the field from the discovery of X-rays in 1895 to the wealth of techniques using MRI, PET and CT being used and further developed today. This is not just of interest to radiologists.
